"The entire city was watching the dead. At a distance the world, too, watched. Sasha Biryusov knew the dead better than the living. He was a connoisseur of funerals now, with Gran, Mum and the aunts all gone the same way, the same year. Death meant being on your own and the isolation was a final for him as it was for them.
